Eyes - Ardell - LashGrip Adhesive for Strip Lashes

Aug/22/2012

The first lash glue I ever purchased was the DUO lash adhesive since that was the only one I was aware of and had heard plenty of rave reviews. Unfortunately, I did not like it at all. It works, yes. However, it is too watery for my liking and the packaging is an absolute nightmare. I will never forget this one incident where I was getting dolled up for a night out, had my outfit and make up on …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Zero

I agree with the user below me in saying that this has to be sharpened before EVERY USE.

I got mine along with the UD Naked palette and was incredibly excited to use it. I did like it the first time because it is creamy and has a nice dark colour. Also judging by the name 24/7, I was expecting it to last a while.

I used it on my upper lash line and waterline and it applied …

Absolute LOVE.

Nars Sheer glow is my first foundation that I actually love. My very first foundation was MAC's Satinfinish which I initially loved (hence my positive review) but started hating later so I should really get around to changing that.

Anyway I basically read reviews for Sheer Glow for MONTHS before finally caving in. The biggest downfall of this product …

This is an absolutely amazing product and it is worth the hype in every way. I live in Hong Kong where we are deprived of UD :( So I got a friend to send it over from London. It cost her 27 pounds (HK$320) and it is absolutely worth it in terms of price.

It comes with 12 neutral colours, including nudes, golds, browns, greys, pinks, silvery shades and purples. I think you can have a …

Eyeliner - Maybelline New York - Line Stylist

Sep/04/2010

This was a TERRIBLE eyeliner for me. I bought it at the store because I tested it on my hand and did my "smudge test" and it was pretty resistant so I got it. Unfortunately I didn't like it at all.

First of all, I have to comment on the ridiculous amount of product you get. 50 mg. Yeap. HALF a gram (0.001 oz) as opposed to most eyeliners which are usually AT LEAST 1 gram …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Groundwork

Sep/03/2010

I bought this about a year and a half ago because I read somewhere that it is a good base for darker women. (I'm NC40 for reference) I tried painterly but it looked too ashy so I bought this with the intention of using it as an eyeshadow base/every day lid color.

First of all, the packaging is great. It comes in a sturdy little glass pot and it seems virtually unbreakable. My …

LOVE this blush. I bought it because I needed a matte pink blush for everyday use. The SA tried this and Blushbaby on me but blushbaby looked too pink for everyday so I chose this.

This is basically a dusty rosey pink that is MATTE, i.e. no shimmer at all. I have too many shimmery blushes so this is a nice change. I love this because it gives me a really nice, "healthy" …

Sep/02/2010

I bought this lipstick on a whim one day. I've always been looking for a decent nude colour that would flatter my skin tone. Most of the ones I tried made me look really ill and washed me out basically. The SA at the MAC store recommended this so I tried it.

I loved it right away. It gave me the nude look I wanted. On my lips it still has a hint of pink but it gives me a really …

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

Aug/17/2010

Okay after reading reviews for this product, I realised that mascara reviews are really subjective because there are a lot of things to factor in: whether lashes were curled, what curler was used, application technique, lash quality in general etc.

I picked this baby up at the Duty Free yesterday because I remembered hearing about it a lot. It costed US$11. I tried it when I got home …

I bought this on a whim one day in the shade "Emerald" which is a beautiful emerald green with slight gold shimmer. I didn't really try it or anything in the store - just bought it for the colour. The colour is gorgeous on brown eyes so if you're a brown eyed babe definitely give it a try.

I tried this today and it is AMAZING. It is literally a dream product - very …
